1907 Thomas Flyer
MODEL "35" New York-to-Paris Racer
BUILT BY E. R. Thomas Motor Co.
Buffalo, New York
ENGINE 4 Cylinder, 70 H.P.
DISPLACEMENT 571.3 Cu. In.
The roots of the Thomas marque began with the bicycle company of Erwin R. Thomas. He had built a good reputation for assembling lightweight, strong, fast and inexpensive bicycles. In 1896, Thomas began experimenting with engine building and designed a one cylinder, air-cooled gas engine that could be fitted onto his quality bicycles, calling the complete unit an "Auto-Bi". But more important to automotive history was the appearance of his first one-cylinder, four-wheeled motor carriage in 1899. Thomas erected a factory especially for automobile production in Buffalo, New York, and promoted his product with advertisements, sales catalogs, and sales manuals.
The four-cylinder model designated as "Thomas Flyer" had proved to be very reliable, so when it was decided to enter the 1908 New York to Paris (Round-the-World) Race, a brand new 1907 Thomas Flyer was removed from the showroom floor. Extra gas tanks were mounted, spare tires strapped on, and some minor modifications made. After traveling 12,427 land miles (over 22,000 miles overall, including sea voyages) in 170 days, George Schuster, the only crew member to travel the entire distance, drove this car into Paris to win the race. There has not been another attempt at a round-the-world auto race since 1908, and as the current world record holder, this is arguably the most historic American automobile in existence.
Because of its victory in the 1908 New York to Paris Race, Thomas automobile sales increased for a time. In 1911 and early 1912, only six cylinder models were produced and by the end of 1912, E. R. Thomas Motor Car Company production ceased.
Just came home from our annual 5 day trip to Mt. Bachelor/Bend, Oregon. I did not take my SLR this time and bought an inexpensive Panasonic Lumix Point and Shoot for the trip. It did pretty well for the candid shots, snow shots, and driving down the road and hang your camera out the window while going 60mph shots. It definitely has nothing on my 50d for sharpness, clarity and color but for $170 should it?
I wish I would have been healthy enough to actually ski but I caught my son's cold and with that and being pregnant I was just too tired. I did have fun taking my son to the sled park and hanging out at Eagle Crest Resort.
The weather was absolutely amazing the whole five days!
